More 'Femme Than Thou'
I was referring to the fact that Canada sat between two ICBM armed superpowers and in the event World War III ever jumped off, ICBM warheads would be flying over Canadian airspace in both directions heading toward their targets in the US and the then USSR. Canadian citizens would be watching the reentry trails streaking across their airspace and hoping and praying none of them were off target or falling in Canadian territory
That was the impression I had watching the blowup between Autumn and Ashley. I know both parties, this has been building between them for a while, and I doubt that even Secretary Clinton could negotiate a peace treaty between the two of them at this point.
But this drama has its roots in an old theme in trans world of more 'femme than thou' . It's the same crap we hate and rail against when it is deployed against us by cisgender females, but when we get into internal discussions or arguments with people we have disagreements with are quick to deploy the femininity card against each other. .
There are some people in this community who were fortunate enough to transition early or have the money and friendly doctors in their areas to do so. Some were able to afford SRS and all the necessary plastic surgery to feminize their looks and bodies if they needed it. Some had estrogen be very good to them when they began morphing into their femme bodies at the start of their transition.
But instead of thanking God for their blessings to be able to transition and make a relatively smooth assimilation into femininity, they take the attitude of rubbing it in the face of people who aren't so fortunate.
Some of them espouse attitudes worse than the lesbian radical feminists, transphobic gay men and right wing Republicans aim at us. They slam their not so fortunate sisters, and then it's on like Donkey Kong in terms of lighting the fuse that creates discord.
I'm tired of it. I'm tired of the 'femme than thou' crap
Whether you paid $10K for your neocoochie, have a neoclit in your panties, are intersex, or are crossdressers trying to figure out if you wish to take that next step and pursue transition, get one thing through all your heads right now.
Our opponents hate ALL of us.
We get enough of that more 'femme than thou' bull feces aimed at us by the rest of the world that hates us. We don't need to be aiming it at each other.
